Los Angeles, CA.
Have glasses really become a fashion essential? I’d say, judging from the overabundance of eye-catching eyewear that's been getting face time over the last few years — be it on the runways or on the red carpet — it's clear that glasses have transformed from geek necessity to chic accessory. So, while it’s a victory for all you longstanding four-eyed ladies out there, it’s also a win for the rest of us prescription-less folk, because it makes for yet another accessory to polish off everyday ensembles.
Admittedly, I’ve held off on this trend, for fear that I’d be selling out as a “hipster” or a “poser” of sorts. In fact, when I finally broke down and wore these to work last week, I felt the need to expose myself telling anyone who commented on them that they were in fact fake- “They’re not prescription!” I’d confess. However, I quickly realized that I was being silly because no one, in an office full of fashionistas, even batted an eye. The truth is, this trend has been going on for quite some time so most people are already doing it- they’re probably just a little more discrete than yours truly.
That being said, I love being able to reach for these tortoise-framed glasses from Firmoo whenever my look needs a perk. Today I’ve paired them with this three-quarter sleeve Houndstooth plaid dress from Forever21 and my go-to pair of riding boots. The bold retro-inspired frames and tall boots help to give this otherwise classic printed shift dress a charming 60’s mod feel.
I hope I’ve inspired you to take the plunge and add a touch of mainstream grownup style to your collection of accessories! If not- perhaps this little offer from Firmoo.com will help?
